A secure, liveable income for all older Australians

COTA Australia Position Statement - April 2014

There is an urgent need for an informed, evidence based national review of income security for older Australians. It must be commissioned by Government but led by independent experts, be comprehensive in scope, and draw on the best policy and economic evidence, expertise and imagination available and actively involve all significant stakeholders.

COTA believes that Australians want and expect all older people to have a secure, liveable income. We recognise this vision presents some fiscal challenges as the Australian population ages, but COTA argues that to fall short of achieving it is both unacceptable and unnecessary.

Finding a sustainable, efficient and equitable future policy platform for retirement incomes is a strategic imperative for Australia, both economically and socially, and there is an increasing range of voices calling for action to achieve this.
